After making such a huge impact in the second season of Marvel's Daredevil on Netflix, Jon Bernthal has spoken some more about his character Frank Castle AKA The Punisher, with talk of him potentially getting his own spin-off series at some point.

Marvel themselves have said that those claims aren't entirely true, but did mention a number of treatments were in development with potential for some coming to the spotlight.

Speaking in a new interview with Complex, Bernthal added fuel to the fire when asked about his hopes for the character however.

He said: "For me, it's not a question of what they want to do with a character, it's more, how are they going to do it, and who's going to be the ones to do it?

"This character is in my bones now, he's in my blood. If they want to go forward in any way, for me it's just really going to be about making sure we do it in a way that's raw and intense. I want to push the envelope. I wanna alienate more of the audience and try to bring them back."

Bernthal also chatted about his engagement with The Punisher character once he'd got the role, explaining: "One of the real joys of doing this has been to just gobble up as many comics as I possibly can. I pretty much drive to every job that I do. So every city that I went through, I found the first comic book store and pretty much bought them out of their Punisher line. I've really gotten into the character through the comics."

Marvel's Daredevil seasons 1-2 are available now to stream on Netflix in all territories where the platform's available.
